Ведомости: Медведев на 7 месяцев засекретил данные о поставщиках госкомпаний в России

Официально это делается для того, чтобы субподрядчики не попали под санкции со стороны США и ЕС

RT лишили аккредитации в Конгрессе США, в Москве пообещали ответить

Галерея корреспондентов радио и ТВ Конгресса США лишила аккредитации в Конгрессе финансируемый российскими властями телеканал RT (бывший Russia Today).  В письме на имя директора информационного вещания американского подразделения канала Михаила Солодовникова сказано, что “решение было принято в ответ на регистрацию обслуживающей RT компании T&R Productions в качестве иностранного агента”.  Глава Исполнительного комитета корреспондентов радио и телевидения при Конгрессе США Крейг Кэплэн заявил ТАСС, что “в правилах пресс-галереи ясно говорится, что аккредитация не может быть предоставлена тому, кто работает “на иностранное правительство или его представителей”, а после регистрации в качестве иностранного агента RT потерял право на журналистскую аккредитацию.  В ответ главный редактор RT Маргарита Симоньян пригрозила лишить американские медиа аккредитации в российских Совете Федерации и Госдуме. А сенатор Игорь Морозов заявил, что Совет Федерации может принять ответные меры “уже сегодня”, 30 ноября, и отреагировать на решение Вашингтона следует “как можно скорее, не затягивая”. По словам Морозова, сейчас иностранным СМИ для прохода в Совфед достаточно лишь показать аккредитационную карту МИД в бюро пропусков. Российские же СМИ обязаны подавать заявку на пропуск, которую рассматривает пресс-служба.  **** На прошлой неделе в России был принят закон, который позволяет Минюсту РФ объявлять “иностранными агентами” иностранные средства массовой информации или получающие финансирование из-за рубежа. Москва утверждает, что это сделано в ответ на регистрацию в США “иностранным агентом” финансируемого Кремлем телеканала RT. Министерство юстиции России уже направило Радио Свобода и телеканалу “Настоящее время” уведомление о возможном признании “иностранным агентом” и ограничениях в их работе. Такое же уведомление получили еще несколько проектов Радио Свобода. Однако какие ограничительные меры могут быть наложены на СМИ, если оно будет признано иностранным агентом, ведомство не разъяснило. Известно лишь, что в Госдуму России был внесен законопроект, который предусматривает для таких СМИ административный штраф до 5 миллионов рублей “за нарушение порядка деятельности зарубежного СМИ в статусе иностранного агента”.

Медведев о Трампе: “Он доброжелательный и адекватно все воспринимающий”

Премьер-министр Дмитрий Медведев рассказал об общении с президентом США и о том, что “контакт нормальный”

Медведев за одну минуту: рубль и пенсии, Путин, Трамп и Навальный

Глава российского правительства Дмитрий Медведев дал десятое ежегодное интервью крупным телеканалам. Участвовали “Россия 24”, “НТВ”, “Дождь” и “РБК”. Коротко пересказываем, о чем 100 минут говорил российский премьер:  О фильме-расследовании Навального: Медведеву нечего добавить к предыдущим комментариям. “Чем больше комментируешь всяких обормотов и проходимцев, тем это для них лучше”. Премьер посетовал, что Алексей Навальный не выполняет решения суда по поводу удаления фрагментов фильма “Он вам не Димон”, но судиться не будет.  О выдвижении Путина: “Все будет понятно уже совсем скоро”. Если Владимир Путин выдвинется на президентские выборы, Медведев и партия “Единая Россия” его поддержат. О главных достижениях года: рубль отвязался от цен на нефть, реальные доходы граждан выросли примерно на 3% (Росстат  не согласен) на фоне роста экономики (2%) и рекордно низкой инфляции (ниже 3%).  О Трампе и США: американский президент “доброжелательный и адекватно все воспринимающий”, но ситуация с отношениями Россия-США “самая плохая, отвратительная”, так даже при Брежневе не было. О дневниках Родченкова, который рассказал о госсистеме поддержки допинга: “Достаточно посмотреть на них, чтобы понять, что этому гражданину нужна психиатрическая помощь”. О бедности: “Это одна из самых кричащих проблем экономики”, с бедностью надо бороться. О пенсиях: их проиндексируют на 3,7% в январе 2018. О своем будущем: Медведев не ответил, что будет делать в будущем, после истечения своих полномочий. На вопрос ведущего, что дальше, он сказал: “Дальше будем служить России!”. Кандидатом в президенты он себя не видит.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz Rips Bully And ‘Big Mouth’ Donald Trump

“I hope hes a better golf player than he is a president, because he surely isnt a good president.”

MPs to debate Trump’s Twitter jibe at May after speaker grants Commons urgent question – Politics live

Rolling coverage of the days political developments as they happen

John Bercow, the Commons speaker, has granted an urgent question about President Trumps tweet. It has been tabled by the Labour MP Stephen Doughy. A Home Office minister – perhaps Amber Rudd, the home secretary, but more probably one of her juniors – will have to respond.

The UQ will come at 10.30am.

UQ granted at 1030 to @SDoughtyMP to ask @AmberRuddHR to make a statement on the activities of Britain First, online hate speech, and the sharing of inflammatory content by the President of the United States, @realDonaldTrump .

So, Theresa May woke this morning to find out that she now has something in common with Kim Jong-un. Like the North Korean dictator, the prime minister has joined the list of world leaders who have now been derided on Twitter by President Trump.

It certainly marks something of a first for the special relationship. Presidents and prime ministers have often rowed bitterly in private, and these disagreements have sometimes spilt out in public too, but getting slagged off on social media? God knows what Churchill and FD Roosevelt would have had to say about this.

.@Theresa_May, dont focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!

Related: Donald Trump attacks Theresa May over her criticism of his far-right retweets

In the end, our relationship with the United States has a longevity to it that will succeed long after presidents come and go.

I dont agree with the tweet President Trump has made, but I have to say I also believe it should not distract from the agenda we have domestically and I dont believe it should detract from the close relationship the UK has had for many, many years and will go on to have with America and the American people.

6:45 AM 11/30/2017 – “Putinism In Transition” | A BRICS Internet? Kommersant looks at a recent proposal from the Russian Security Council to have the BRICS countries pool their efforts on Internet security.

“The Kremlin is now run by regents around a diminished president, and discussion is already focusing on what the post-Putin era will look like.” 

Gleb Pavlovsky

ON MY MIND

Is the so-called “collective Putin” diverging from its creator?

In a strongly recommended piece featured below, former Kremlin insider Gleb Pavlovsky writes that the Russian elite is currently less concerned with preserving the continued rule of Vladimir Putin than it is with preserving the system Putin established.

“We increasingly have the impression that ‘the boss is away,'” Pavlovsky writes.

“The management of Russia that is formally exercised by the president has been almost entirely taken over by his inner circle and the presidential administration, which has ceased being just a general staff and has turned into a player with its own special interests.”

Is Pavlovsky right? There certainly are data points out there suggesting that he is.

Arrests are taking place that do not appear to be sanctioned by Putin. Figures like Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin and Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov seem to be pursuing independent agendas. Intramural clan warfare appears to be intensifying.

As Pavlovsky suggests, “The system is not only functioning without a fully functional Putin, it also lacks any strategic direction.”

So, are we witnessing the birth of Putinism without Putin — or at least with a diminished Putin?

A necessary caveat: Every time pundits have written off Putin in the past, he has come roaring back.

But somehow, this time it just feels different. It feels as if next year’s election will not only be Putin’s last — which has become the consensus position among Kremlin-watchers — but that it will be a watershed that will usher in a new political era.

IN THE NEWS

Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations has accused the U.S.-led coalition in Syria of trying to partition the country by setting up local governing bodies in areas seized from the Islamic State extremist group, Russian news agencies reported.

The organization overseeing media access to the U.S. Congress has stripped Russia state-funded TV channel RT of its press credentials.

A Canadian man has pleaded guilty to his role in the 2014 hack of Yahoo’s e-mail servers, the latest development in a mysterious investigation that has ensnared officers of Russia’s main security agency.

Two men in the central Kazakh city of Qaraghandy, members of a Russia-based semireligious group called the Union of Co-Creators of the Holy Russia, are being tried on charges of inciting ethnic and religious hatred.

A lawyer for a Russian historian who is being tried on child pornography charges his supporters say are politically motivated has asked a court to move his client from jail to house arrest.

Tatar language classes are no longer mandatory in Russia’s Tatarstan region, a senior official has announced.

A U.S. diplomat has dismissed the idea that the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline will ever be built.

During his first trip abroad since his inauguration earlier this month, Kyrgyz President Sooronbai Jeenbekov has pledged to make “every effort” to strengthen the partnership between Kyrgyzstan and Russia.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has signed a law declaring December 25 a public holiday.

WHAT I’M READING

New PSSI Report On Russian Active Measures In The Visegrad Four

The Prague Security Studies Institute has released a new report — United We Stand, Divided We Fall: The Kremlin’s Leverage In The Visegrad Countries — on Russian influence operations in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Poland. You can download the full report here.

Explaining The War Drums

As I note in today’s Daily Vertical, the rhetoric in Moscow is becoming increasingly — and alarmingly — bellicose as the long winter sets in. It has included schools in Siberia being told to prepare for wartime conditions, Vladimir Putin telling defense contractors to ramp up production, and Patriarch Kirill’s remarks about a looming apocalypse.

Novaya Gazeta’s politics editor Kirill Martynov has a commentary contextualizing the recent wave of bellicose rhetoric from the authorities.

Meanwhile, economist and political analyst Vladislav Inozemtsev looks at recent proposals to increase military production and what they indicate in a commentary for RBK.

Russia’s North Korea Problem

In his column for Republic.ru, Moscow-based foreign affairs analyst Vladimir Frolov writes that, with its latest missile launch, North Korea has put Russia in a very uncomfortable position.

New Blog From NED: Power 3.0

The National Endowment for Democracy has just launched a new blog, Power 3.0, that explores how authoritarian governments spread their influence in a globalized information age and how democracies are contending with this challenge.

  • Putinism In Transition

In a commentary on the Moscow Carnegie Center’s website, former Kremlin insider Gleb Pavlovsky argues that with the 2018 election, Putin has become diminished and Russia is entering into an era of transition.

  • Ulyukayev And Sechin

In a commentary for Novaya Gazeta, political analyst Leonid Nikitinsky argues that Aleksei Ulyukayev and Igor Sechin both benefit from the Rosneft CEO’s refusal to testify in the former economic minister’s corruption trial.

  • A BRICS Internet? 

Kommersant looks at a recent proposal from the Russian Security Council to have the BRICS countries pool their efforts on Internet security.

The US presidents Twitter attack on Britains prime minister leaves her with a toxic diplomatic dilemma how to respond to a contemptuous US presidentIt is some poor officials job this morning to tell Theresa May that while she slept, the relationship with the US became special for all the wrong reasons.It is at least historic. No US president in modern times has addressed a UK prime minister with the open peevishness and contempt of Donald Trumps tweet telling May to mind her own business.

After Michael Flynn flips on Donald Trump, his son Michael Flynn Jr flips out

On Wednesday it was revealed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has paused his grand jury against Michael Flynn, the surest sign yet that Mueller and Flynn are hammering out a plea deal in Donald Trump’s Russia scandal. Flynn is widely believed to be reluctantly cutting a deal in order to protect his son Michael Flynn Jr, who also faces serious exposure to criminal charges in the scandal. Now that Flynn Sr is flipping, Flynn Jr isn’t taking the news well. In fact he’s flipping out.Michael Flynn Jr has spent the past few days making vague Twitter posts suggesting that things may or may not be what they seem. However, shortly after it was revealed that his father really is wheeling and dealing with the Special Counsel, we got this tweet from Flynn Jr:
It’s not entirely clear how we’re supposed to interpret the animated GIF of Jim Carrey screaming and ripping his hair out. Is this what he expects society’s reaction to be to the Michael Flynn deal? Donald Trump’s base may be nervously tearing out its hair, as Flynn has the goods to take down Trump and everyone else involved, but mainstream Americans are celebrating the news that Flynn is flipping. In any case, Flynn Jr’s other tweets of the day suggests that he’s the one flipping out.

At one point Michael Flynn Jr attacked Fox News host Geraldo Rivera for defending Matt Lauer. At another point Junior retweeted a completely nonsensical tweet from Donald Trump about contempt citations. The other day he retweeted WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a key suspect in the Trump-Russia conspiracy. This guy is all over the place. We’re continuing to monitor Flynn Jr’s Twitter account because once his father formally signs a deal that gets his son off the hook, we’ll see the son being forced to suddenly stop tweeting altogether.

The post After Michael Flynn flips on Donald Trump, his son Michael Flynn Jr flips out appeared first on Palmer Report.

Roger Stone apologizes, admits hes been lying about Trump-Russia the entire time

Donald Trump’s former campaign adviser and longtime friend Roger Stone has long portrayed himself as a bully in the public square. Stone sells conspiratorial political books for a living, and loves to play the part. In fact he’s been such a misbehaving bully, he’s been permanently banned from CNN and Twitter. But now that he finds himself firmly in the crosshairs of the Trump-Russia scandals, he’s revealing himself to be very much a coward.Rather than face contempt of Congress or worse, Roger Stone has coughed up the name of the WikiLeaks go-between he was using during the election: his friend Randy Credico. In so doing he’s sold out Credico, who has just been subpoenaed by the House Intelligence Committee as a result (link). As it turns out, that’s just the beginning of the story, because now Stone is admitting he’s been lying the entire time, and he’s apologizing for it.Ryan Lizza, who writes for the New Yorker and appears on CNN, tweeted this after the news broke: “I asked Roger Stone in March if Randy Credico was his Wikileaks contact and he lied to me and said no. He just texted me, ‘A misguided effort to protect Credico who I felt had helped me on an off the record basis. Sorry.’” So now, not only is Stone giving up his friend to try to save himself, he’s also confessing to his lies and apologizing to the media. Has he turned over a new leaf? Probably not. He may be more worried about obstruction of justice charges.

Lying to a journalist is not a crime in and of itself. But if it can be demonstrated that Roger Stone lied to the media (and thus the public) for the purpose of trying to throw off investigators, that can meet the legal definition of obstruction of justice. Now that Stone is panicking and caving, he may be caving all the way.

The post Roger Stone apologizes, admits he’s been lying about Trump-Russia the entire time appeared first on Palmer Report.

Young people arent Stalinists they just wonder what fairness might look like | Richard Godwin

To claim that having any qualms about feral capitalism leads straight to the gulag is disingenuous, dangerous and just a bit dimA spectre is haunting Britain: the spectre of Stalinism. I dont know if youve spoken to a young person recently me neither but if you stalk one or two on social media, a clear mental picture begins to emerge. Im imagining earnest arguments in the student union about whether Lavrenty Beria was more effective than Felix Dzerzhinsky. WhatsApp groups brainstorming five-year-plans. Tearful scenes in the multiplex over The Death of Stalin. To you and I, its political satire. To millennials, a tragedy!

To be clear, because the line between satire and sincerity is a little hazy at the moment, none of this is really happening. At least, not in any meaningful way, though one of the features of millions of people uploading half-formed thoughts online every second is that you can find evidence for anything if you look hard enough. Imagine what the NKVD, the Communist partys secret police, could do with that!

Tts also worth stressing that just because a passing liberal says something anti-capitalist, it doesnt mean they want to burn the rich

A tribunal considering appeals by six Croats convicted over actions during the conflict in Bosnia descended into confusion as rulings were being delivered.

Hague War Crimes Defendant Says He Took Poison In Court

Former Bosnian Croat General Slobodan Praljak appeared to drink what he said was poison just as his 20-year sentence on war crimes was upheld in The Hague. Soon after the incident on November 29, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) quickly suspended the appeals hearing of Praljak and five other defendants. They were convicted for their involvement in a campaign to drive Muslims out of a would-be Bosnian Croat ministate in Bosnia in the early 1990s. Praljak…

Young people arent Stalinists they just wonder what fairness might look like | Richard Godwin

To claim that having any qualms about feral capitalism leads straight to the gulag is disingenuous, dangerous and just a bit dimA spectre is haunting Britain: the spectre of Stalinism. I dont know if youve spoken to a young person recently me neither but if you stalk one or two on social media, a clear mental picture begins to emerge. Im imagining earnest arguments in the student union about whether Lavrenty Beria was more effective than Felix Dzerzhinsky. WhatsApp groups brainstorming five-year-plans. Tearful scenes in the multiplex over The Death of Stalin. To you and I, its political satire. To millennials, a tragedy!

To be clear, because the line between satire and sincerity is a little hazy at the moment, none of this is really happening. At least, not in any meaningful way, though one of the features of millions of people uploading half-formed thoughts online every second is that you can find evidence for anything if you look hard enough. Imagine what the NKVD, the Communist partys secret police, could do with that!

Tts also worth stressing that just because a passing liberal says something anti-capitalist, it doesnt mean they want to burn the rich

Hague War Crimes Defendant Says He Took Poison In Court

Former Bosnian Croat General Slobodan Praljak appeared to drink what he said was poison just as his 20-year sentence on war crimes was upheld in The Hague. Soon after the incident on November 29, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) quickly suspended the appeals hearing of Praljak and five other defendants. They were convicted for their involvement in a campaign to drive Muslims out of a would-be Bosnian Croat ministate in Bosnia in the early 1990s. Praljak…

UN War Crimes Court Upholds Convictions Against 6 Bosnian, Croat Leaders

A U.N. war crimes tribunal upheld the convictions Wednesday of six Bosnian and Croat political and military leaders who were convicted in 2013 of war crimes during the 1990’s. The ruling was the last to be handed down by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, which was created by the United Nations in 1993. The court is scheduled to close when its mandate expires at the end of the year. The officials were convicted four years ago of participating in an “ethnic cleansing” campaign against Bosnian Muslims during Bosnia’s war. Among the officials was former defense minister Jadranko Prlic, who had been convicted of participating in a criminal enterprise by the Croatian government of late President Franjo Tudjmano to create an ethnically pure state. The Croatian government insisted it had “clean hands” during the 1992-95 war and wanted that finding overturned. Several convictions for specific crimes for Prlic and the other defendants were reversed in an appeal, but the presiding judge said “all six remain convicted of numerous and very serious crimes.” The hearing was suspended after one of the suspects, former military commander Slobodan Praljak, drank from a bottle in court and claimed to have ingested poison. As he drank from the bottle, Praljak yelled “I am not a war criminal” moments after the court confirmed his 20-year sentence. The court’s original conviction said Tudjman played a leading role in a plan to create a small Croat state in Bosnia.

Trump and the Russian Beauty Queen

PART I: THE PRINCESS IN THE GILDED CAGE

Oxana Fedorova was a tall, raven-haired beauty from Pskov, a old Russian city near Estonia.She was studying to be a police officer in St. Petersburg, Russia when she decided to try her luck in a local modeling contest. Fedorova entered the 1999 Miss St. Petersburg pageant and won. Two years later, the 23-year-old police lieutenant became Miss Russia, which awarded her winning a new Mercedes and a Cartier watch.

Vladimir Putin, newly installed as Russias president, was said to be a keen admirer of the reigning Miss Russia, a karate black belt and an excellent shot. A photo of Fedorova was on display near his office in the Kremlin. The Telegraph of Londonreported that the organizers of the Miss Russia pageant had crowned Fedorova in a feudal display of loyalty to the head of state. She was even rumored to be Putins secret lover. Not true, Fedorova said. Its just a coincidence that we are both from St. Petersburg, the work of fate. There are no links with the president.

6db384c8ab5ceb8bf51ca02591deca8b

Vladimir Golubev

Fedorovas real boyfriend wasnt the president. He was a Russian Russia mobster from St. Petersburg.

Vladimir Semenovich Golubev, aka Barmeley, got out of  in prison and became a gangster in St. Petersburg in the 1990s. Golubev was a silent partner in Adamant Holding, a real estate company founded in 1992 that today controls 29 shopping malls in St. Petersburg.  (See Russian Forbes.)

The Russian press reported that Golubev had links to the Tambov gang, a criminal syndicate that dominated St. Petersburg in the 1990s. Back then, the deputy mayor of St. Petersburg, a man named Vladimir Putin, was collaborating with the Tambov gang to launder money and gain control of the gambling business. (See Karen Dawishas excellent book Putins Kleptocracy.)

According to Russian press reports, Golubev had supported Fedorova since she she had won Miss St. Petersburg as a teenager. Fedorova reportedly traveled either in his company or with guards he sent to accompany her. Officials with Miss Universe noted that money never seemed to be a problem for the beauty queen.  She was like a beautiful bird living in Golubevs gilded cage.

PART II: MISS UNIVERSE

In 2002, Oxana Fedorova entered Miss Universe, the international beauty pageant then owned by Donald Trump.

The pageant was held in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Fedorova and other beauties from around the world competed for prizes that included a years salary and an apartment in one of Trumps Manhattan buildings. (The apartment was more like a dormitory for Miss Universe shared it with Miss USA and Miss Teen USA.)

At the Coliseo Roberto Clemente in San Juan, Fedorova dominated the swimsuit competition and was crowned with the diamond-studded tiara.

Trump, who was in the audience watching, allegedly rigged the contest for Fedorova, according to Seth Abramson, an author and attorney. Abramson said he spoke to a source present that night in Puerto Rico who claimed that Trump told the celebrity judges actors, fashion designers, and NFL star Marshall Faulk   whom to choose as winner.

Four months after she was crowned Miss Universe, Fedorova was fired. Federova had failed to show at numerous photo shoots and other high-profile functions, including a commitment to help crown Miss Teen USA. It was the first time that a winner had been forced to surrender her title.

Trump said the president of the Miss Universe organization, Paula Shugart, had asked Fedorova to resign. When Oxana didnt resign, Paula had no choice but to terminate her, he said. Anonymous insider sources quoted by the New York Postwent for Fedorovas jugular. An unbelievably spoiled bitch, one called her. Another said she was overweight and pregnant, which Fedorova denied.

Over the years, Fedorova has given several reasons for her decision to give up the title of Miss Universe. She had to care for an ailing relative.  She did not want to give up her studies. (She now holds a doctoral degree.) She was upset no one had warned her before her lewd interview with radio host Howard Stern.

Asked by Russian reporters whether pressure from her gangster boyfriend Golubev led her to abandon the Miss Universe crown, Fedorova replied, This is my personal life, and I do not want to talk about it.

The view from Russia was that Trump had been paid off to crown Fedorova. Nikolay Kostin, the organizer of the Miss Russia contest, suggested to a reporter for the respected Russian daily Kommersantthat Trump had been bribed to hand the crown to Fedorova.

Nikolay Kostin in response to such accusations only smiles and asks who then dared to offer a bribe to the owner of the Miss Universe contest Donald Trump, who presented the crown to Oxana Fedorova, and how much he was given.

Vitali Vitaly Leiba, president of the model agency Red Stars, told the newspaper, It is very difficult to determine the addressee of a possible bribe. We can say that Trump was given a bribe, or it is possible that the U.S., in the person of face  Trump, offered a bribe to Russia, encouraging her representative at the contest.

Update: An astute reader points out that Vitali Leiba was a founding shareholder of Arigon Company Ltd., a Channel Islands company established in 1990 by the Brainy Don, Semion Mogilevichwhose name keeps turning up in the Trump-Russia affair. An 1996 FBI report called Arigon the center of the Mogilevich Organizations financial operations.

PART III: THE UGLINESS IN TRUMPS BEAUTY CONTESTS

There is no proof that Trump was bribed or that he tipped the scale for Oxana Fedorova, but there were multiple claims that the pageants were rigged.

Michael Schwandt, a choreographer who worked on Miss Universe and Miss USA, told Guanabee.comthat Trump would have all the contestants line up and he would walk past like a commander reviewing his troops with an assistant taking notes. Its just kind of common knowledge that he picks six of the top 15 single-handedly, Schwandt said.

The choreographer said Trump told him he exercised the Trump rule so because some of the most beautiful women were not chosen as finalists in the past and he was kind of upset by that. Schwandt disavowed his comments but here is audio  of Trump explaining the Trump Rule to Miss USA contestants.

Audio Player

A contestant in 2012 Miss USA told a judge that her contest had been rigged. Sheena Monnin wrote on her Facebook page that a fellow contestant had seen a sheet of paper listing the five finalists before the contest. (She reaffirmed the claim in her delcaration.)

. I witnessed another contestant who said she saw the Top 5 BEFORE THE SHOW EVER STARTED proceed to call out in order who the Top 5 were before they were announced on stage. Apparently the morning on June 3rd she saw a folder lying open to a page that said FINAL SHOW telecast, June 3, 2012. After the Top 16 were called and we were standing backstage she hesitantly said to me and another contestant that she knew who the Top 5 were. I said who do you think they will be? She said that she didnt think she knew because she saw the list that morning. She relayed whose names were on the list. Then we agreed to wait and see if that was indeed the Top 5 called that night. .

Trump was furious. He said Monnin had losers remorse, and said that if you looked at her and compared her to the other people who were in the top 15, you would understand why she was not in the top 15. His  consigliere Michael Cohen called into TMZ Live and said that Monnin had 24 hours to retract her statement or that she could bet [her] a** that [Miss Universe] will sue . . . seeking massive damages. Consigliere Cohen was good to his word. Trump obtained a $5 million defamation award against Monnin in an uncontested arbitration proceeding, which was upheld by a federal judge.

A 2013 investigation by Jezebel found that a pageant recruiter in Trumps Miss USA franchise allegedly demanded a blow job in exchange for magazine work that would allow a contestant to pay the $895 contest entrance fee.

Trump had acquired the Miss Universe franchise in 1996. He reportedly paid tens of millions of dollars (the exact figure was not disclosed) to buy it from ITT Corp., beating out beat two television networks and several South American media moguls. (The deal also included Miss USA and Miss Teen USA.)  Trump ran Miss Universe as a 50-50 partnership with TV networks, first with CBS, and, after 2002, with NBC.

On the surface, it looked like a good business. It cost $20 million to bring the 2013 Miss Universe pageant to Moscow. Emin Agalarov whose family owns the arena that hosted the pageant broke down the costs for Russian Forbes. A third of that $20 million went to secure rights. Another third: organizational costs. And the final third goes to the production and broadcast costs.  (Another report said overseas rights to Miss Universe were selling for $6 million in 2003.)

Very little of that money, however, was distributed to the general partners of Miss Universe. We know this because Trump had assigned his half of his interestin Miss Universe (25 percent of the company) to his publicly-traded corporation, Trump Entertainment Resorts, Inc.  In 2002, the year Fedorova won in Puerto Rico, Trump Entertainment collected a mere $700,000 for it quarter share of the pageant. In 2003 and 2004, Trump Entertainment earned nothing from Miss Universe.

Where was all the money going?

Even if the business was a stinker, there was one attraction for Trump. It allowed him to indulge his Porkys-style adolescent fantasy of seeing beautiful women naked when they were in no position to refuse.

Ill go backstage and everyones getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump told Howard Stern in 2005.

Listen for yourself:

Audio Player

Asked whether he had ever slept with a contestant, Trump declined to say. It could be a conflict of interest. But, you know, its the kind of thing you worry about later, you tend to think about the conflict a little bit later on.

Trump sold Miss Universe in 2015 to the talent agency WME | IMG for $28 million. The value of the franchise had been damaged by Trumps description of Mexican immigrants as criminals and rapists, which led NBC and Univision to drop coverage of Miss USA.

Michael Flynn is already ratting out Jared Kushner and others

Just five days after Michael Flynn revealed that he’s negotiating a plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, he’s already ratting out his former White House colleagues and notably, the entire thing is playing out in public. The controversy centers around Flynn’s attempt at building nuclear power plants in the Middle East, which turns out to have involved some high profile Trump White House players as well.

Michael Flynn was forced to resign as Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser in February, after the media exposed that Flynn had been secretly communicating with the Russian Ambassador about sanctions during the transition period. Since that time, it’s come to light that Flynn had also been attempting to negotiate a nuclear plant deal in the Middle East, as part of his unregistered work as a foreign agent. Now the Wall Street Journal (link) is suddenly reporting that Flynn continued to work on the plan after he was ousted, and he involved the likes of Jared Kushner and Thomas Barrack in that scheme.

What stands out here is the timing of this leak. This information could only have come from Michael Flynn. Either he’s leaking this to the media in order to prove to Robert Mueller that he has the goods to take down key Trump-Russia players and thus deserves a lenient deal, or Flynn has already privately given this info to Mueller, and Mueller is leaking it to try to scare the other players into cutting deals of their own.

In any case, the timing cannot be ignored. Just days after Michael Flynn decided to cut a deal which would require him to turn over incriminating information on bigger fish in Donald Trump’s White House, suddenly that trail of information is beginning to leak out to major news outlets. One way or the other, Flynn is already ratting out other Trump-Russia players. Look for more of these types of Flynn-originated leaks in the coming days.

The post Michael Flynn is already ratting out Jared Kushner and others appeared first on Palmer Report.

After Democrats snub him, Donald Trump holds berserk press conference with two empty chairs

Earlier this morning, Donald Trump posted a rude, lying and racist tweet about his upcoming meeting with Democratic Party leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. This prompted the Democrats to call off the meeting entirely. Trump never did respond on Twitter, suggesting he was caught off guard. But by the afternoon, Trump delivered his response in the most demented fashion he could think of: he held a press conference with two empty chairs. No, really.

Trump held a White House press conference which looked like this:

The two empty chairs had name tags for Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. Republican leaders Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell sat in chairs outside of the camera view. We’d tell you what Donald Trump said during this berserk press conference, but not one word of it was intelligible. At certain points it appeared, in all seriousness, that Trump may have forgotten those two seats were empty, and seemed to believe Chuck and Nancy were actually there with him. At best it was a failed attempt at recreating Clint Eastwood’s infamously failed “empty chair” faux-interview with President Obama. At worst, we may be watching Trump in the midst of a hallucinatory psychotic break.

This all came after Donald Trump started the day by tweeting this piece of absurd nonsense: “Meeting with ‘Chuck and Nancy’ today about keeping government open and working. Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I dont see a deal!” There wasn’t a single true or accurate word in his tweet.

The real reason the Russian oligarchs are looking at ousting Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump both

Earlier this month, the Russian oligarchs fired a thinly veiled warning shot at Russian President Vladimir Putin when they planted simultaneous stories in multiple major European newspapers claiming that Putin was considering quitting. Putin has no such plans, but it was the Russian billionaires’ way of reminding him that they control his fate and they’re unhappy about the costly sanctions corner he’s backed them into. Now the real reason for their impatience is coming to light, and it’s even uglier than previously known.The new sanctions law passed by the United States in August will financially harm the Russian oligarchs far more severely than previously believed, according to a new profile from The Economist (link). These increased sanctions will serve to blacklist the oligarchs as if they were terrorists, preventing them from carrying various kinds of business deals, and devastating them in the wallet.

It’s not widely understood, but Putin’s primary motivation for rigging the U.S. election in Trump’s favor was to get existing U.S. sanctions against Russia lifted. Those sanctions have personally cost Putin billions of dollars over the past few years, and they’ve cost his oligarchs even more. Instead, because Putin rigged the election in such a brazen way and got caught, and because Trump has been such a disaster, it’s prompted the U.S. to crack down with even harsher sanctions.

At this point the Russian oligarchs may only have one path for getting sanctions lifted and getting back on the good side of the United States: by ousting Vladimir Putin from within, and by taking down Donald Trump in the process. It’s why the oligarchs planted those stories about Putin’s supposed retirement in the media. This has been all about money, and lots of it, from the start. Putin helped make the oligarchs wealthy to begin with, but now he’s costing them money and they won’t tolerate it for much longer.

Russia Is Returning to Growth. (Just in Time for an Election.)
 

mikenova shared this story .

Figures discussed on Friday at Mr. Putin’s meeting with government and central bank officials showed strong consumer demand, a main driver of the growth. Retail sales for the month increased 3 percent compared with a year before, according to the state statistics service. The Finance Ministry projects the overall economy to grow 2.1 percent for the year. That would be Russia’s first full year of economic growth since a recession began in 2014.

Other economic indicators have been trending in the same direction. Inflation is expected to be about 4 percent for 2017, low by recent Russian standards. As recently as 2015, official figures showed consumer prices were rising more than 15 percent, and ordinary Russians were feeling the pinch. The cost of Russian staples was rising: The price of bread, an important product because of its mythologized status in the Soviet period as a symbol of well being, increased about 11 percent a year during the recession, according to the state statistics agency.

But as the price of oil, a major export commodity, has recovered from multiyear lows in 2014, Russia’s central bank has resumed purchases of hard currency. It has been replenishing the reserves its uses to maintain the long-term stability of the ruble.

“It’s a broad recovery, and it will continue,” said Vladimir Osakovsky, chief Russia economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. “There is strong fundamental support.”

The country certainly faces challenges, Mr. Osakovsky and other analysts say. It remains vulnerable to swings in the price of oil and natural gas, for example. The two commodities account for about 60 percent of export revenue and 50 percent of the federal government’s tax base, and a sudden drop in prices could expose wider issues with the economy.

Experts also worry that Russia’s banking system is vulnerable. The central bank had to nationalize two midsize private lenders this year, and several banks lost money betting against the ruble in recent years, according to Vladimir Tikhomirov, chief economist at BCS Global Markets, an investment bank.

“So far, the central bank has managed to keep the banking system working,” Mr. Tikhomirov said. But, he added, “the cost of saving these banks is growing.”

Still, positive news has been trickling in.

In September, Fitch, the credit rating agency, revised its outlook for Russian sovereign debt to positive from stable. Through the year, foreign investors have piled into Russian government bonds, raising the share of Russian debt held by foreigners to more than 30 percent, up from 5 percent.

Also helping the recovery was government spending on major infrastructure projects, including a bridge across the Kerch Strait to Crimea, a major gas pipeline to China called the Power of Siberia, and soccer stadiums for the World Cup, which Russia will host next year.

That has helped the country overcome Western sanctions imposed during the Ukraine crisis and over meddling by Moscow in the 2016 election in the United States. These “smart sanctions” were in any case narrowly targeting companies and businessmen aligned with Mr. Putin, meant to affect Kremlin insiders and not to slow the overall economy or hasten political change.

Mr. Putin now finds himself in a more favorable economic environment before next year’s election. And even though Russians have taken a considerable hit to their pocketbooks in recent years — real income, or wages adjusted for inflation, declined through the recession — he remains the overwhelming favorite. In an October survey conducted by the Levada Center, an independent polling organization, two-thirds of likely voters said they would cast their ballots for Mr. Putin.

Spurring growth beyond the 2 percent region forecast by the government will not be easy, though.

The country will very likely have to agree a series of major economic overhauls in order to bolster its long-term growth potential. The retirement age — currently 55 years for women and 60 years for men — will have to be raised, economists say. Without such changes, expansion will remain capped at its current levels, Russia’s central bank chairwoman, Elvira S. Nabiullina, warned this month.

“Without reform,” Mr. Tikhomirov said, “the future for Russia will be fairly bleak.”

Russia in Syria: ‘Victory’ in war but can Moscow win the peace?
 

mikenova shared this story from BBC News – Home.

Russia has emerged from the Syrian crisis with its military and diplomatic reputation significantly enhanced. But this has been achieved amid huge controversy over the means used and amid much international criticism.

It has ensured the survival of the Assad regime at the same time expanding its own small military footprint in the country. But the diplomatic ramifications too have been considerable.

It, not the United States, is the “go to” player. Russia is marshalling a loose alliance of Iran and Turkey to try to plot Syria’s future. Even the Saudis have had to beat a path to Moscow’s door.

Russia drew its own lessons from a series of Western military interventions over the past two decades. It watched with alarm as the US and its allies hailed the upheavals of the Arab Spring as the dawn of a new era of democracy in the Middle East.

Russia’s conclusions were more pragmatic and more pessimistic. And it subsequently applied those lessons in Syria.

Russia did not see the popular rebellion there as the positive harbinger of a new democratic order. Rather it was seen as part of a wider tide of instability rising across the region that threatened to lap over Russia’s own borders.

Crucially, it made a pragmatic assessment of the situation. It chose to stick with its long-time ally, Mr Assad. It defined its strategic goals quite narrowly and, crucially, it deployed sufficient military force to carry them out. In short, it saw an opportunity and acted.

Russian air power, special forces and equipment gave a military backbone to President Assad’s crumbling forces, with Iran’s allies like Hezbollah and various other Shia militias providing badly needed foot soldiers.

Together they allowed President Assad to defeat both rebel forces and so-called Islamic State across a significant part of the country. Syrian government forces and their allies have taken back all of Syria’s major population centres.

The opposition is not totally destroyed but it is largely demoralised.

As Prof Joshua Landis, a Syrian expert at the University of Oklahoma, told me: “There remain a number of militias that have not given up and continue to win foreign backing, but they are almost uniquely arranged along the border with Turkey.

“They will continue to give Assad a hard time, until he crushes them or comes to terms with Turkey about their disposition.

“Otherwise,” he argues, “the opposition has been largely dismantled. It is possible that secret cells will try to carry on with strikes on government buildings and explosions in crowded markets, but the Assad government demonstrated considerable skill and ruthlessness in rolling up such terror organisations before the uprising broke out.”

Russia has achieved this “victory” – if you want to call it that – by the simple exercise of realpolitik with little concern about what its many critics would call the morality of its actions.

Russia sided with a regime that many people believe was not just turning its guns on its own people but was carrying out war crimes. It has shielded the Syrian government from pressure over strongly based allegations that it has used banned sarin gas and other chemical weapons.

The Russian air campaign obeyed its own rules and typically used large numbers of “dumb” or unguided bombs and missiles.

The US and its allies have tended to use largely precision-guided weapons in their operations over Iraq and Syria. (These, of course, still kill innocent civilians, often far more than the military spokesmen are prepared to admit.)

But the fact remains that Western air power, mindful, not least, of public opinion at home, does go to great lengths to minimise civilian casualties as far as possible. Russia’s leaders have no such constraints.

And to the extent that Russian domestic opinion is a factor, Mr Putin has achieved success in Syria with relatively few Russian casualties and with a relatively limited military deployment.

So is it all over for the Syrian opposition? Prof Landis says that “it will be very hard for those that live in exile to maintain a serious military option in the future so long as Syria’s neighbours are unwilling to sponsor them and provide them safe havens as they were in the past.

“Of course,” he notes, “millions of Syrian opposition members now living as refugees or outside the country revile Putin and Russia and continue to look to Western governments to destroy the Syrian regime and return them to their country.

“Like the White Russians of 100 years ago, (the exiled conservative opponents of the Bolshevik Revolution) they are likely to be disappointed.”

Russia has secured a military victory but can it win the “peace”? Well it emerges from this crisis with its diplomatic hand strengthened. In many ways it outplayed the Obama administration – Washington’s efforts to build and arm a coherent Syrian opposition collapsed a number of times – and it has run rings round President Trump’s team.

Some of Washington’s allies like Turkey, who had long called for President Assad’s removal, ultimately decided that they needed to secure their own strategic interests. For Ankara this is the prevention of the emergence of any autonomous Kurdish entity and thus they have thrown in their lot with Moscow and Tehran.

The Trump administration is yet to elaborate a coherent policy towards Syria or indeed for its broader goal of containing Iran’s rising regional influence. It has few levers to pull. The only successful element of US strategy has been its support for and arming of Kurdish fighters.

If the US maintains its support for the Kurds then Joshua Landis says Washington “will be able to beggar the Syrian government and maintain leverage in the region. The US has helped the Kurds take control of most of Syria’s oil and gas fields. This means that Syria will have a much harder time rebuilding.

“The US effort to keep Damascus weak and poor”, he says, “will also limit the victory of both Russia and Iran in the region. But strategically, by choosing to side with the Kurds, Washington will continue to alienate Turkey, Syria and Iraq.”

But Mr Trump’s stance towards the Kurds seems clouded in uncertainty with reports emerging that he has assured the Turks that arms supplies to Kurdish fighters will now be halted in the wake of IS’s defeat. As so often with this presidency the news seems to have caught other members of the administration off balance. Such a stance may help to pacify Ankara but it will be seen as a betrayal by the Kurds and may weaken them if the Syrian government decides to go onto the offensive.

Russia too may face diplomatic problems ahead. Moscow, Damascus, Ankara and Tehran may be united for now, but their medium-term strategic goals may differ.

Russia is under pressure from the Israelis to curb Iran’s influence in Syria. Israel may not be able to bring much diplomatic pressure to bear on Moscow but it clearly has the military power to seek to influence developments in Syria if it feels threatened. And will Turkey, Russia and Iran continue to see eye-to-eye ?

Russia’s real plans for Syria’s future are unclear. It has assiduously worked with some opposition groups to bring them into local ceasefire arrangements. But this is essentially short-term. Will these hold?

Will the Syrian regime have the manpower to maintain its control over the areas it has recaptured? Will the Shia militias and Hezbollah remain in the country? And whose interests will they be serving, Syria’s or Iran’s?

Russia’s “victory” – if you want to call it that – is far from complete. If Moscow really has a plan for Syria, few details have been provided so far.

Russia certainly has a whip hand over the developing peace process, but its goals remain opaque. Will President Assad himself remain a fixture or merely the regime that he represents?

For now though, Mr Putin has many achievements that he can bank. Russia has been shown to be a reliable ally. Its military forces have shown their ability to mount a complex expeditionary operation. Syria has provided a “shop-window” for many of Russia’s most modern weapons systems.

Russia is again a significant diplomatic player in the Middle East in a way that it has not been since the early 1970s. Indeed then it was probably already a waning force. Today it is a rising one facing a US diplomatic effort that is largely incoherent.

Russia is back on the world stage. And if you set aside the misery and suffering in Syria to which all of the external actors have contributed, that ranks as an achievement in Mr Putin’s playbook.

Flipping Michael Flynn: The real and imagined damage of a Mueller deal | TheHill

Flipping Michael Flynn: The real and imagined damage of a Mueller deal
© Getty Images

News that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is talking to special counsel Robert Mueller has Trump critics virtually hyperventilating with excitement. Indeed, the prospect of flipping Flynn has led some to all but declare the end of the Trump administration as we know it.

Former Obama administration ethics chief Norman Eisen declared on Twitter, “BAD NEWS FOR TRUMP. Flynn may or may not have dirt on the Prez, but he surely will roll over on Kush, who will flip like a pancake on daddy-in-law’s [obstruction]. They are gonna have to start frisking Jared for a wire in the Oval.” He ominously noted about Mueller, “When I was at State & he was at FBI we worked together on an investigation, & he loves surprises. Kushner, Donnie Jr. and the rest of the Trump crime family better keep their overnight bags handy. Pack shoes with no laces guys.”

While this case may be endlessly entertaining for some and Mueller may “love surprises,” these people, including Trump himself, are not props in some progressive fantasy production. Before Mueller has some major delicious “surprise,” he will need a crime other than those committed by Flynn himself. The effort to flip Flynn is the most predictable development in this investigation. First, he has clear allegations of criminal conduct in his work as a foreign agent. Second, his crimes are the type that prosecutors would have few qualms in trading away for good testimony. Third, he was in a high position that could allow him to produce “deliverables” on higher ranking individuals.Finally, and most importantly, he has a kid in the mix: Michael Flynn Jr., who served as chief of staff to the Flynn Intel Group. As I previously discussed with regards to Trump himself, there is a danger in enlisting family in political work, and this is one of them. It makes you profoundly vulnerable when investigators come knocking. Mueller’s people have been circling “junior” and this withdrawal may indicate that he is the one price that Flynn is not willing to pay. Flynn’s son could now be the subject of a “third-party credit” in exchange for his father turning government witness.

It is important not to make any assumptions about the status of Flynn. Withdrawal is necessary even at the start of negotiations due to the conflict presented with other potential defendants. Any such deal could fall apart. Flynn is not some low hanging fruit. He is a major player and would be a trophy defendant for Mueller to add to his current indictment of former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort. He has to produce something more valuable than himself for any real deal.

Nevertheless, Flynn could have counted on a potential presidential pardon if he remained loyal. Trump’s controversial pardon of former sheriff Joe Arpaio showed everyone that the president is willing to use this power despite overwhelming criticism. Becoming a cooperating witness could close off this avenue, and Flynn would have to believe that what Mueller is threatening is more significant than what Trump might offer.

Flynn could be facing serious claims of false statements to investigators under the U.S. Code and other laws. He is accused of misrepresenting meetings, including one with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak that Flynn is accused of misrepresenting to Vice President Mike PenceMichael (Mike) Richard PencePreet Bharara: Helping Mueller probe might be only ‘sane’ move for FlynnMueller grand jury to question Flynn associate: report White House military personnel reassigned after ‘incident’ on Trump’s Asia trip: report MORE and others. He also failed to register as a foreign agent. While only a handful of such cases have ever been prosecuted, Mueller charged Manafort under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, including allegations that he gave false information and sought to hide money derived from his work.

Flynn faces analogous alleged violations, including the cycling of payments through a Dutch firm, Inovo, that is owned by Ekim Alptekin, chairman of the Turkish American Business Council and close ally of President Erdoğan. Some of Flynn’s contacts with the Russians may have been captured by U.S. intelligence agencies, and he reportedly sought to gain access to damaging hacked emails on Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonSusan Sarandon: ‘It wouldn’t be much smoother’ with Hillary Clinton as president GOP chief: Voters will be ‘judge and jury’ in Alabama Senate race Dem on Flynn: ‘Karma can be very difficult’ MORE. Flynn could shed light on a June 2016 meeting with Russians to obtain disparaging information about Clinton as well as the influence of people like George Papadopoulos and Carter Page in establishing Russian ties.

Flynn also faces some more sensational claims, including alleged discussion of the effective kidnapping and delivery of Erdoğan critic Fethullah Gülen to Turkey for presumed torture and execution. At a meeting at the 21 Club in New York, Flynn was reportedly offered $15 million to arrange for Gülen to be taken on a private plane to a Turkish prison island. Flynn was also allegedly involved in a virtual propaganda film meant to discredit Gülen. The timing of these meetings is important because some communications occurred in December, when Flynn was assuming the role of acting national security adviser. If Flynn continued to be paid for such work in January, bribery charges could be alleged.

The most serious threat of flipping Flynn might be to Manafort, former CIA director James Woolsey, or Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner. Woolsey reportedly participated in the meeting on the kidnapping or “rendition” of Gulen and has been named as involved in some of these lucrative arrangements with foreign entities. Of course, there is always the possibility of damaging testimony involving President Trump. Such testimony would have heightened value to Mueller given Trump’s own statements. By trying to pressure Comey to “let Flynn go,” the president created his own damning narrative. With James Comey ready to testify that Trump’s overtures made him feel uncomfortable, leading to his famous memos, a witness on the other side could box in the president.

None of this means a perp walk down the White House driveway anytime soon. There is still no evidence of criminal conduct by Trump nor Kushner revealed in public court papers. Flynn is clearly a live torpedo in the water. However, while he has the range, it is not clear if he has the load to do serious damage to anyone in the White House. Rather, the concern should be that he and Mueller may be seeking a target of mutual interest, and if he hits, there will be nothing speculative or subtle about it.

Ex-Russian minister says he thought bag with $2 million cash was gift of alcohol
 

mikenova shared this story .

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Former Russian economy minister Alexei Ulyukayev, accused of extorting a bribe, told a court on Monday he thought a bag holding $2 million in cash which he took from Rosneft (ROSN.MM) chief executive Igor Sechin held a gift of expensive alcohol.

Ulyukayev faces up to 15 years in prison if found guilty of accepting the $2 million cash from Sechin, a close ally of President Vladimir Putin.

Prosecutors said the bribe was given last year on Nov. 14 in exchange for Ulyukayev approving the sale of a state-controlled oil company Bashneft (BANE.MM) to Rosneft.

Police detained Ulyukayev inside Rosneft headquarters shortly after Sechin handed him the cash inside a lockable brown bag and “a little basket with sausage” as a gift, prosecutors said. . The next day Putin fired Ulyukayev.

Ulyukayev, speaking to the court, said he had believed the package contained a gift but that a trap had been set for him. “All this was an action directed against me, planned in advance, a provocation organized in advance,” he said.

Ulyukayev’s lawyers are trying to explain to the court why he accepted the bag from Sechin given that – according to transcripts of their conversations – neither man had discussed what was inside.

Ulyukayev said when he had been economy minister, Sechin had visited his ministry two or three times and usually had come to the office “with a bulky bag,” containing presents.

During that period, Sechin personally presented Ulyukayev with a watch and a model of an oil-derrick, and he sent a food hamper on occasions such as birthdays, Ulyukayev said.

Ulyukayev had also received alcoholic drinks from Sechin as gifts, a prosecutor said.

“That was a norm of etiquette,” from Sechin’s point of view, Ulyukayev told the court.

The ex-minister said the bag which Sechin gave him last year at Rosneft headquarters in a law enforcement sting operation weighed about 15 kg (33 lbs) and he thought there had been expensive wine or spirits inside.

Ulyukayev said that a month before, Sechin promised to present him with a wine he “had never tried before in his life” to mark the successful closing of the Bashneft privatization deal.

For that reason it came as a surprise that the bag contained money, Ulyukayev said.

Sechin has been issued with four summonses to testify in the trial, but has failed to show up, despite being a key witness. His lawyer said in a letter to the court that Sechin had been away on business trips.

Sen. John McCainJohn Sidney McCainTrump touts ‘big week for tax cuts’ as Senate GOP nears critical voteFive health-care fights facing Congress in December State Department wracked by departures under Trump: report MORE(R-Ariz.) ripped President Trump in an interview, saying he doesn’t think the president has “principles and beliefs.”

“I don’t agree with the way he’s conducting his presidency, obviously,” McCain said during an interview with Esquire.

“He’s an individual that unfortunately is not anchored by a set of principles. I think he’s a person who takes advantage of situations.”

McCain said Trump was “successful” as a builder and an entrepreneur.

“But I don’t think he has the fundamental underpinnings of principles and beliefs,” he said.

He added: “I don’t think there was any doubt about his views toward me. But I’m a loyal Republican.”

McCain has criticized Trump in the past. Last month, McCain during an event blasted the “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States.

In response to McCain’s comments, Trump warned: “At some point, I fight back and it won’t be pretty.”

McCain later shot back, saying: “I’ve faced far greater challenges than this.”

Trump also attacked the Arizona Republican after he voted against a GOP bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

McCain’s dramatic vote killed the bill and left ObamaCare the law of the land.

Trump later said McCain “let down” his party and the people of Arizona by opposing the measure.

Putin and United Russia Have Some Very Liberal Moscow Neighbors
 

mikenova shared this story .

Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin might maintain a strong grip on Russia, but since a Sept. 10 election, the ancient fortress on the Moscow River is surrounded by the opposition.

Anti-Putin liberals have filled local councils in the Russian capital’s historic and commercial core as well as a few upmarket residential areas—attaining majorities in 17 of the city’s 125 municipal districts. In some others, the opposition has sizable minorities. While these councils have only the slightest power to effect change, on par with a New York City community board at best, the symbolism is what really seems to matter to the election’s victors.
In one of Russia’s political paradoxes, it’s often easier for the Kremlin to control the rest of the country than its own capital. It was home to the giant rallies of the late 1980s and the defense of the Russian parliament during the hardliners’ coup of 1991, which precipitated the collapse of the Soviet Union. Moscow has continued to be a hotbed of opposition during Putin’s tenure, even as the federal government pours billions of dollars into urban improvement and new transportation infrastructure.
“The authorities understand that a voter in Moscow requires a more sophisticated approach—straightforward suppression of the opposition doesn’t really work,” said Abbas Gallyamov, a political consultant who used to work for the government supervising regional election campaigns.
This envelopment of the Kremlin by political enemies may serve Putin’s purposes by keeping activists focused on broken elevators and potholes instead of publicizing corruption or seeking higher office. However, Gallyamov said, the local victories coincide with the rise of protest activity across the country, fueled in part by the main opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, and his long-shot presidential campaign. (It’s unlikely Putin will even allow him to register as a candidate for the March 2018 vote.)
Dmitry Orlov, a political strategist who sits on the Supreme Council of Putin’s party, United Russia, said the authorities understand the problem posed by the emergence of what he calls “a ring of hostile municipalities” around the Kremlin, and they do their best to neutralize it—sometimes through cooperation, sometimes by trying to split the opposition. It’s not that the locals have any real power in the face of an authoritarian central government: “The main threat is that the municipalities might transform into centers of protest activity in the run up to the presidential election,” Orlov said. But suppression is not the answer, he added, since “it will lead to a more aggressive protest movement consolidated around politicians of the Navalny type.”

So for now, while party strategists ponder how to deal with this new reality, the liberals are gaining experience doing something they probably thought impossible under Putin—governing, if just a little bit.

The central administrative area of Moscow includes 10 districts, of which five have majority-opposition councils, four are evenly split, and one is controlled by pro-Kremlin deputies. The historic area centered on the Kremlin, known as Kitay-gorod, is part of the Tverskoy district, where the opposition holds 10 of 12 seats.

Moscow, like St. Petersburg to the northwest, has federal status, so its mayor functions as a regional governor. Sergey Sobianin defeated Navalny in 2013 to become Moscow’s mayor in an election the opposition protested as tainted. From his office in the middle of the city, Sobianin presides over Moscow’s City Council (which is controlled by Putin allies) and appoints the heads of district council executive boards, or upravas. The upravas oversee the activities of liberal councils like the one in Gagarinsky.

The district (population: 79,000) is a showcase of Soviet urban planning. An area of wide avenues and fortress-like apartment blocks encasing tree-filled courtyards, Gagarinsky incorporates a long belt of landscaped parks running along a bend in the Moscow River. Home to scientific institutions and a Moscow University skyscraper, the district has a large number of children and relatives of scientists who moved there in the 1950s. Ever since it elected famous dissident Andrei Sakharov to the Soviet parliament in 1989, Gagarinsky, which sits southwest of the Kremlin, has had a reputation as one of the most liberal-leaning districts in the entire country.
The gateway to Gagarinsky is a vast square, where the statue of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin faces the Russian Academy of Sciences, itself topped with a shiny, golden metal installation that’s earned the building its nickname: the brains. On Sept. 10, Putin arrived there to cast his vote in the Moscow municipal election. All 12 of the deputies who won were nominated by the opposition liberal party Yabloko. United Russia came up empty, though in races for offices representing the district at the national level, Putin’s party won handily.

Putin, 65, is widely expected to seek a fourth term next year, and win. This would extend his presidency to 2024, completing almost a quarter-century in power as the longest-serving Russian ruler since Josef Stalin. Liberal candidates for national and regional offices have repeatedly come under pressure by the government during his tenure.
But none of this stops Yelena Rusakova, who before the September election was the only liberal deputy on the Gagarinsky council. It’s not that the opposition had lost the previous election—she was just the only one running back then. Other members of the council before this year’s liberal sweep were largely nominated by United Russia and the Moscow mayor’s office. Pro-government council slates were often made up of school teachers, military pensioners, and retired public sector employees, and they traditionally didn’t challenge the mayor or the uprava.
Rusakova, 55, a social psychologist, has been an activist since before the Berlin Wall fell. In 1988, she joined the Memorial, an organization that researches state-sponsored violence under the former Communist regime (and which has been targeted by Putin’s campaign against “foreign” agents). These days, she’s affiliated with the liberal Yabloko party and chairs the Gagarinsky council with an absolute majority of fellow activists. Before the election, they had worked to block several construction projects, including a proposed rebuilding of Leninsky Avenue, a central Moscow thoroughfare that bisects Gagarinsky. Almost all of the council’s new members are middle-aged professionals and academics.

On a Friday evening late last month, the new deputies of the Gagarinsky council took their seats in a cramped room on the ground floor of a Universitetsky Avenue tower. Activists and ordinary residents filled the rest of the room, often interrupting deputies with questions and long-winded addresses. (Apart from Rusakova, the deputies generally don’t get paid.)
Sitting quietly was the newly appointed head of the district’s uprava, Yevgeny Veshnyakov. He oversees the council in Gagarinsky with three deputies and a staff of a few dozen. The uprava functions as the local arm of the mayor’s office, which approves all decisions regarding construction, transport, urban improvement and trade regulation. The council, meanwhile, can allocate funds only for lower-grade projects such as renovating courtyards and organizing public celebrations. They can question the actions of the uprava and make their own proposals about bigger projects, but they cannot enforce their will.
The previous head of the uprava was fired by Moscow Mayor Sobianin following the United Russia party’s total defeat in the council elections. After Rusakova introduced Veshnyakov, the session moved on to issues the deputies do have the authority to decide—in this case, the reconstruction of playgrounds and parking lots.
In an interview, Rusakova said she had low expectations about cooperating with the uprava. “These people are sent here to wage a war against us, not to cooperate,” she said. Veshnyakov declined to comment.

Local residents seemed cautiously optimistic about their new representatives. Yelena Vorobyeva, a mathematician in her fifties, has spent years lobbying for replacement of a potentially unsafe swing at the children’s playground, but old deputies said there was no money. After the election, things started moving. “These guys hear us,” she said, adding that she admires the new deputies’ business-like approach. Aleksandr Bunin, an aviation engineer, has been bogged down in prolonged litigation with the district council over the installation of traffic barriers outside his home. He thinks he’ll be able to resolve his issue with new deputies. “They are, of course, very inexperienced, but at least they are normal people.”

The issues handled by the council may be minuscule, but Rusakova believes this is exactly where the opposition to Putin needs to start. “The state should be rebuilt again from ground zero,” she said, hitting on the key question about her strategy: The ruling party seems content to leave liberals to their devices at the lowest level of governing, but the liberals see their small victories as the beginning of a long road back. Who is right?

One Saturday, Rusakova led a visitor to a local patch of greenery known as Molodyozhnaya ulitsa. “Look at this park,” she said. The council has had to fight repeatedly to prevent development, pushed by private investors, that would eradicate the little oasis among the grim apartment blocks. “This is a favorite place for locals—but for government officials, it’s a potential construction site.”

“Moscow is a trendsetter. It’s always a step ahead—but the rest of the country eventually catches up”

Before the latest election, the Kremlin had full control of all 125 municipalities in the capital, with only a few opposition deputies on a handful of councils. Now, with 17 opposition-run districts and some 13 councils evenly split, the tide at the lowest level of government may be turning. The belt of opposition-controlled councils stretches from the southwest of Moscow across the city center to the north. Dozens of other districts with their first opposition members are concentrated in the leafier, western neighborhoods favored by the middle class. Districts in the grittier, working-class east are solidly pro-Putin.

Government supporters, meanwhile, aren’t sitting idly by as this tiny rebellion brews. Members of Facebook groups tied to the Gagarinsky district and Rusakova began to attract sponsored posts linking to a story by the government-funded RAPSI news agency. In it, Rusakova and her allies were accused of “destabilizing the situation” by protesting construction projects, some of which they fear will damage the area’s verdant character.
Gagarinsky is filled with trees dating back to the 1950s. Every Saturday, Rusakova and her fellow council members put on rubber boots and grab shovels for their weekend routine—filling in a trench dug out by a developer. It was cut to run six kilometers of cable from a power station to an apartment block in another district. The construction was frozen, but the trench remains, leaving roots exposed as the ice-cold Moscow winter approaches, threatening the trees planted by the grandparents of current residents.
“People need really good self-organization to oppose this system and eventually, to change it,” Rusakova said. “Where we see hotbeds of self-organization, we can also see instances when the government backs off.” This is what happened with the trench. When people first gathered to fill it, the uprava sent in the police. But when more people came the following Saturday, it sent shovels and few janitors to give a hand.

North of the Kremlin, a man who spent years trying to stage a peaceful anti-Putin revolution now occupies a key office in the local government of Krasnoselsky (population 48,500), a district centered around three major railway stations. Like Rusakova in Gagarinsky, Ilya Yashin, a close ally of slain opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, now heads a council of like-minded deputies.
After moving into his office, Yashin, 34, took down Putin’s portrait and replaced it with a vintage 1989 election poster for Solidarity, the Polish anti-Communist movement, featuring John Wayne as “the new sheriff in town.” A bookcase is still filled with United Russia literature left by his predecessors.
After almost two decades of street protests aimed at bringing about a Ukraine-style revolution, Yashin is now focusing on the same small-bore issues as Rusakova—repairing old apartment buildings, neighborhood beautification, and opposing unpopular construction projects.
Yashin’s new duties verge on the ironic, given that he helped write reports critical of Russia’s wars in Ukraine and Chechnya: He  heads the local military draft commission and supervises the work of district police, whose chief must report to him on his achievements. “I have been delivered into his police department in handcuffs several times,” Yashin said, adding that the police chief has already asked him for help finding apartments for his officers.
Yashin’s new job is indeed a reversal from his old life of street protests. But the example of neighboring Ukraine, which saw two revolutions in the span of a decade, makes him wonder why successful revolutionaries aren’t as good at conducting crucial reforms. “It is easy to gather a group of passionate people and oust a dictator, b
